Season 15 – done & dusted
Wednesday May 4, 2022. All Stars Media
The Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series recently finished another successful season and now it’s time to look back and recap just a few of the highlights, but let’s face it when the racing is first rate that isn’t an easy thing to do.

• 58 cars lined up to run with the series over 9 shows, the original schedule was set for 12 shows but 2 were lost at the start of the season with border closures and then 1 was lost to bad weather.
• 11 teams completed the entire season which was the highest number of contracted cars since 2016/17.
• 8 different feature winners
• 7 different Quick Time Winners
• 8 different Hard Chargers
• 14 different drivers on the podium
• The All Star Challenge had its highest car count with 42 cars as well as an increase in the purse making it $15000 to win and a record payout of just on $40K. South Australian Brendan Quinn won the money. Quinn was a last minute entry after competing in Qld the weekend prior and with a forecast of bad weather decided to return home, find a 360 and go for it. What a fairy-tale ending for him.
• Flocon Mildura Moonshine Masters was won by Mark Caruso. Based on the 3 A Mains held at Mildura Caruso picked up an additional $3K for his effort. Mark beat his brother Steve by 1 point for bragging rights around the shed.
• Paul Solomon joined the 100 club – so now both Paul & Locky have competed at 100 series rounds.
• The end of season Championship paid out $22,000 to the top 10 drivers, plus another $8K in contingency prizes
• An average car count of 25 cars per show for the season.
• It all came to a head on Good Friday for the Grand Final where Brad Warren in the VA9 McClure Racing Team became the 13th name to go down in the history books as the Series Champ.
• Mark Charge was inducted in the All Star Legends Hall of Fame
• More than 6,500ks, 300 Frisbees handed out, bags and bags of giveaways for the kids, Trophies junior supporters, nightly BBQ’s, Beer & UDL’s, and several boxes of tissues.
“To try and sum it up it isn’t easy to do but we do know that 360’s are very strong, we had incredible racing at every show, we made more memories and we made more friends. Now we have to start the hard work on preparing for next season.” Promoter Searle says.


First full time assault and $10K richer
Wednesday April 20, 2022. All Stars Media
Brad Warren & McClure Racing joined forces at the end of last season and between them decided they would attempt the entire All Star Series. Not only did they complete the full series but they took out the Championship. Team principals Paul & Faye McClure are based in Mildura and have competed with the series for several years with different drivers along the way.

Warren is based in Pakenham but the 7 hour travel distance between them didn’t stop them from gelling together. “I remember Paul telling me at the end of last season that he wanted to do a deal with Brad for this season and from then on they haven’t looked back. Wazza has run with the series off and on when he got the opportunity over the years but this was his first time as a contracted driver. It’s a huge effort to come on-board with a new team, learn how to work together, learn how to be consistent and not to let the pressure get to you. Winning a series is a whole lot different to winning a race, you have to finish all the time and when we run 9 or 10 rounds that’s a whole lot of finishing! But they did just that and picked up $10,000 as the Series Champ.

We have some pretty heavy hitters on our Honours Board and now Brad goes down in the record books as the 2021/22 Champ.” Promoter Searle says.

9 rounds under their belts, 6,000ks or more, 5 months of planning and preparation all came to a head on Good Friday for the Grand Final. The series took the opportunity to congratulate their Drivers and Teams at the end of season Presentation at the traditional Pit Party Presentation on Friday night and with a large crowd in attendance the Awards were presented.

The accolades went to:

H’s Star Award – Corey Sandow
Best Presented Car & Crew – Hunter Motorsport – 2nd year in a row
Crew Chief of the Year – Paul McClure - $500 cash
Rookie it the Year – Jeremy Kupsch - winning 4 Max Wheels from Max Dumesny Motorsport
B K Racing Products Lucky Draw – Jordan Abbot – winning his choice of either a custom K1 Race suit or a complete custom Ti Bolt Kit.
Frequent Flyer Award – Todd Moule – winning an Brunnhgelzl Aluminium Jack from Max Dumesny Motorsport
Most Improved – Corey Sandow
Drivers Driver – Charles Hunter
Rising Star Award – Jordan Abbott
Herbert’s Custom Cycles Maxie’s Keep on Fighting Award – Jason Bolitho - $500 cash
Vogels Chassis Dyno – Brett Smith
Special Recognition Award – Jay Brown
All Star Hall of Fame Legend – Mark Charge





Top 10 in the Championship – 1st VA9 Brad Warren-3956, 2nd V7 Paul Solomon-3918, 3rd V60 Jordyn Charge-3866, 4th V39 Brett Smith-3738, 5th Jeremy Kupsch – 3587, 6th V73 Charles Hunter-3558, 7th Jordan Abbott-3435, 8th V43 Corey Sandow-3322, 9th D26 Todd Moule-3294, 10th VA84 Todd Hobson- 2912.

Also recognised were all the loyal sponsors and officials some who have also been with us over the past 15 seasons. Without sponsors and officials like these the Series would not be able to run at the level it currently does.

Thanks everyone for a fantastic night and again congratulations to everyone, now roll on 2022/2023 season.
Rusty & donuts – hand in hand at Mildura
Tuesday April 19, 2022. All Stars Media
On a balmy 30 degree Sunday night in front a huge crowd Rusty Hickman put on a clinic taking out Quick Time, winning both his heats and then locking in the 30 lap Synopec Lubricants 360 Easter Nationals.
Hickman had only just returned to racing after injuring himself back in January and having to sit out all the major shows but showed no evidence of slowing down. He then treated the crowd to a donut session that had them roaring for more.
Young hard charger SA3 Ben Morris had his best podium result after lining up in P11 and coming home in 2nd. Local hero Cam Waters V6 ran 3rd. Lining up on the front row was Hickman & V60 Jordyn Charge, Charge kept with the pack but got swallowed up and backed up a bit but worked his way back up to 3rd crossing the line in 5th by the finish. Starting in P4 V73 Charles Hunter led the early laps looking fast but had to pull in when his bonnet lifted blocking his vision.
After his first A Main victory Friday night D26 Todd Moule’s luck had turned with him sitting on the infield for the A with engine gremlins. SA33 Mark Caruso finished strong after starting in P10 and finishing 4th.
Running his Dads 50th Anniversary tribute car VA84 Todd Hobson was quick and up to P2 but had to pull infield with front end damage with only a couple of laps to go. Mid pack racing was well contested with positons changing regularly but in the end SA10 Steve Caruso, D21 Zac Farrer, V7 Paul Solomon, V95 Ryan Davis, SA96 Brendan Guerin, SA4 Lisa Walker, V39 Brett Smith, NT52 Jason Bolitho, V97 Blake Walsh rounded out the remainder of the field.
“What a night and man what a race. We were concerned about the weather with light drizzle threatening off and on but luck was on our side and we managed to get it done. The track was superb allowing 2 or more lines of racing on both nights. The crowd were privileged to see some of the best racing this season and that was in all the sections. A big congrats to the team at Timmis Speedway for suppling an excellent race track again and a brilliant weekend.” Searle said.
Heat wins – Rusty Hickman x 2, Todd Hobson, Brendan Guerin, Corey Sandow, Jordyn Charge


Moule wins the Battle, Warren wins the War
Monday April 18, 2022. All Stars Media
On Friday night 3rd Generation throttle stomper Todd Moule took out the final round of the 2021/22 Mainline Dynolog Dynamometers Allstars Series at Timmis Speedway. In a final that was cut short due to a massive wreck when Rusty Hickman tore down some of the Turn 3 fence Moule was able to pass early leader Cam Waters with 10 to go.

Meanwhile Brad Warren would take the series championship win after gaining enough points in the heats. Unfortunately for him damage to the Left Rear would force him to the infield just 1 lap in. His series included 1 feature win, multiple heat race victories and plenty of laughs along the way.

2 time Allstars Series Champ Mark Caruso would lead the field to Green and finish second after falling back to the 6th position in the early parts of the track. Brendan Guerin finished third after starting 10th. Next across the line was Ben Morris with Corey Sandow rounding out the top 5.

Last start winner at Mildura Steve Caruso was next followed by Ricky Maiolo, Brett Smith, Jason Bolitho, Jordyn Abbott and Zac Farrer rounding out the finishers. Hickman, Jordyn Charge, Paul Solomon, Todd Hobson, Paul Solomon, Waters, Jay Brown, Kane Newcombe and Warren all finished on the infield. Ryan Davis had troubles with his machine as they pushed away for the 30 lap final and would sit on the infield at the drop of the green.

Heat wins went the way of Hickman who broke the 1 lap record at Timmis Speedway in the process, Sandow, Mark Caruso, Morris, Waters and Newcombe. Brett Smith capped off his first full tilt at the Allstars Series with Quick Time. Sandow, Mark Caruso, Hickman and Abbott would round out the tope 5.

Attention now turns to Sinopec 360 Easter Nationals where another full line up is expected.



Easter Bunny, Excitement & nerves all rolled into one weekend.
Thursday April 14, 2022. All Stars Media
The countdown has begun for the conclusion of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series. Friday night a new series Champion will be named and now the question is - will a new name added to the records or will it be a past champ recrowned. Brad Warren is currently on top of the leader board with 3550.

It is Warrens first full season with the All Stars and the McClure Racing VA9 Maxim. Car owner Paul has been a regular on the series for several years supporting it with different drivers and would dearly love to be crowned Champ. Young hard charger Jordyn Charge is currently 2nd with 3533. It is also Charges first full season with the tour. The InCharge Racing Team would also love to take out the honours.

Veteran All Star Legend & past Series Champ Paul Solomon is in 3rd – 3507. Will this be Cyclones 3rd Championship? 4th is the popular Heath Hunter Motorsport Team driver Charles Hunter on 3470. Hunter came on board the Series last season and enjoyed it so much he recommitted to a full season. Team Hunter prides themselves in presentation and the car is always fast around Mildura, they will be one to watch. Rounding out the top 5 is Brett Smith with 3292. Smith has picked up TEH Hard Charger Awards & HHC Quick Time awards and will want to finish the season on a high.

Friday night is also the final of the Flocon Methanol Moonshine Masters where the winner picks up $3000 and a bottle of Methanol Moonshine. This miniseries is based on A Main points for the last 2 shows at Mildura. SA10 Steve Caruso is currently on top of the leader board but this is really anyone’s miniseries to win defending on where drivers finish in the A.

The locals are showing strength again with V6 Cam Waters slotting his 360 in for Easter to run in front of his home crowd, VA43 Corey Sandow, VA52 Jason Bolitho, SA51 Jay Brown. Talented Rookie D26 Todd Moule has been travelling interstate to pick up more laps in both his 410 and 360. 410 regular SA4 Lisa Walker has decided to lease a 360 for Easter. Walker has been on the podium in the past with the series and is certainly a gasser. SA3 Ben Morris, V83 Chris Solomon, SA95 Brendan Guerin, VA91 Dan Scott, VA84 Todd Hobson, V95 Ryan Davis, is just few other names for the 30 strong field.

It’s going to be a huge weekend Series Final Good Friday night, back to the traditional Presentation Pit Party with a Hawaiian theme and then the drivers all get to do it again on Sunday night with the Sinopec 360 Sprintcar Easter Nationals.

Farr and Anderson throw their names into the ring
Tuesday January 12, 2021. All Stars Media
Fresh off the news that JMac is competing at the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Challenge two other heavy hitters have also nominated for the show.

Robbie Farr will be driving for Victory Lane Racegear’s Drysdale Chaff Mills, Ramsdale Wreckers, Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers J&J V88. Farr has been signed to run Avalon, Mt Gambier and Premier the following weekend so car owner Mat Eastham decided to include the All Star Challenge. Eastham is a regular supporter of the All Stars so it certainly isn’t unusual to see him at the Challenge.

Grant Anderson has teamed up with Brad Foster for the night running the B&B Retaining Walls, Ostrich Racing Engines J&J V11. Foster was the 2012/13 Series Champion running with the All Stars since its conception but has sat out of the seat to concentrate on work and family over the past couple of seasons. Foster has been working with Anderson for a while now to make things happen but up until now things just did line up. Fortunately for the Series they have now managed to make it happen.

“What can I say – WOW, it is fantastic. The show just keeps getting bigger and bigger.” Searle said


Rusty claims the Beasley Show
Monday January 11, 2021. All Stars Media
Night one of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star season started on a high for Team Hickman with the young gun taking out a Heat win, Top 6 Shoot Out and Col Beasley Classic.

“Lucky was definitely the word for it, I went really well all night but the front wing dropped which made it pretty hard in the steering, I dropped to the bottom, then the yellow came on and I could hear the old man at the fence revving me up to run the top. I could hear Chrissy behind me, Farrer and Benny Morris and thought there’s some good guys behind me; so I thought I would run the top and see how she feels but with no front wing I had no real steering, then Benny threw a slider past me, I was going to go back under him but I thought nah – I just hold her wide open and run the top. I tell you what I was busy, I’m going to have to hit the gym I reckon, I’m pretty sore in the arms” said an elated Hickman at the post race interview.

The line-up for the A was strong with Hickman starting on pole, SA11 Scott Enderl in 2, SA33 Mark Caruso 3rd, V83 Chris Solomon 4th, D26 Todd Moule 5th and V73 Charles Hunter 6th. The green was dropped but the rear of the field unfortunately not making it past Turn 2 and bringing on the reds. V7 Paul Solomon had to change a tire forcing him to start rear. SA95 Jarman Dalitz had top wing damage making his car a handful for the A. Hickman lead from the start but was challenged several times by Chris Solomon & Ben Morris with Morris passing him only to be repassed by Hickman. TEH Hard Charger Brenten Farrer in the V34 Frijtek machine originally started 6th in the B Main. Starting 15th in the A and finishing on the podium in 3rd. SA11 Scott Enderl was top points overall and timed 2nd quick in the Shoot Out allocating him to start 2nd in the A. Enderl was running a solid 2nd early in the race but unfortunately pulled infield with damage. Mid race the lap traffic came into play with the top 6 running both high and low on the track dicing for positions. With 8 laps to go the yellows came on with VA9 Dan Evans tangling with a lap car and spinning in T2. With a clear track ahead Hickman managed to keep his ill handling, wheel standing car in the lead and keep Solomon, Farrer, Mark Caruso and Ben Morris from passing.

Reigning series champ Michael Tancredi’s V29 had a shocker of a night to the start of the series only doing Time Trials before his engine expired taking him out of contention for the night.

Heat wins – Todd Moule, Steven Caruso, Scott Enderl, Mark Caruso, Rusty Hickman, and Brenten Farrer

A Main results: 1st Rusty Hickman, 2nd Chris Solomon, 3rd Brenten Farrer, 4th Mark Caruso, 5th Ben Morris, 6th Phil Lock, 7th Steven Caruso, 8th Jarman Dalitz, 9th Charles Hunter, 10th Jason Bolitho, 11th Paul Solomon, 12th Kristy Ellis, 13th Dan Evans – DNF, 14th Marcus Green – DNF, 15th Scott Enderl – DNF, 16th Todd Moule - DNF, 17th .Jesse Nicholas – DNF, 18th Jay Brown – DNF, 19th Brett Smith – DNF

Monte Motorsport slot in a 360
Monday January 11, 2021. All Stars Media
Yes you did hear it first directly from Monte Motorsport Team that their first race on the east coast will be the Heytesbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway All Star Challenge. JMac is swapping his 410 for a 360 for possibly a one off occasion to run the prestigious event and try to pick up a cool $10K along the way.

Promoter Searle told us “We are absolutely rapt to have James come and have a run with us for the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Challenge this Saturday night. James is not normally a 360 racer but having said that he did win the 2019 360 Knoxville Nationals and that alone is an amazing achievement. Back in the day I always told James that I would love him to come and run with us and now it is finally happening. It’s our biggest show for the year and we are honoured to have the best drivers in the world run with us.”

This coming Saturday night Heytesbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway

Annual Col Beasley Classic 2021
Wednesday January 6, 2021. All Stars Media
“Finally we are about to kick off season 14 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series at Timmis Speedway, Saturday night January 9th. I can’t wait to see all our old teams, meet our new teams and be back at Mildura; a star studded line up making it an exciting way to kick off our season with the Col Beasley Classic incorporating RD1. As everyone remembers Col was a well-loved bloke around Mildura and passionate sprintcar competitor. He ran with us back in the day and we are really honoured to be able to hold this 4th tribute night in his honour. Unfortunately last season Col’s race was washed out but the weather is looking good for this weekend. ” says Mandy Searle Series Promoter
.
A new initiative this season is the Flocon Mildura Moonshine Masters. This incorporates the 3 series races at Mildura and pays $2000 to the winner. “Seeing we aren’t travelling along the Murray River this season we needed to replace our King of the River miniseries and decided that as we have a few shows at Mildura we would put an added incentive for teams to travel for each round. The driver with the highest points overall for these 3 shows based on the A Main only will pick up a $2000 bonus.” Searle said.
Making his debut in 360’s is Supercars Tickford Racing pilot Cameron Waters. Waters is driving for Colin McQuinn’s Chief Racing team in a Maxim chassis recently acquired from the McFadden Family. The team had a shakedown at practice last Sunday. “I’m not underestimating the task ahead one bit and my first run in the car last Sunday was a real eye-opener, despite having had some previous Speedway experience,” said Waters. The team plan on contesting about 10 shows this season.

Current series champ V29 Michael Tancredi was one of the first to nominate returning to defend his championship. Defending Beasley Classic winner Daniel Evans will be driving for Paul McClure in the VA9; Evans & McClure joined forces last season and are continuing the partnership this season. Solomon brothers Paul & Chris are both past Series champs and already have laps under their belts running 410 shows lately. Brenten Farrer is making a return to the series. Farrer’s V34 is another past champ and has secured a 360 for the series. V40 Rusty Hickman is another hard charger running with the series again this season. The name Hickman is synonymous with the series with both his Mum, Sandi & Dad Darren competing back in the day. Darren was the inaugural series champ in 2007/08. Another pair of brothers is competing against each other with All Star regular Mark Caruso being joined by his Steven. Mark’s SA33 and Stevens SA10 cars look alike but driving styles are different and they don’t give each other an inch on the race track. V73 Charles Hunter is a new name to the series along with V76 Adam Cullinger and rookie racer D26 Todd Moule. Phil Lock, Brendan Guerin, Jarman Dalitz, Scott Enderl, Marcus Green, Dan Scott just to name a few are pumped to get back on track and return to racing.

With a field of 29 cars the excitement has been building to run on the newly revamped B&S Earthworks Timmis Speedway. The Timmis Club have spent the last few months working tirelessly laying a new race track, concrete pole line, irrigating the infield, working on Club Rooms & Kitchens and overall upgrading the venue. Congratulations must be given to all the doers and shakers that have made this happen.

On track action starts from 6.00pm. January 9th Timmis Speedway, Mildura.


All Stars – the secret is out
Tuesday January 5, 2021. Media Release by Speed Café.com author Daniel Herrero
Cameron Waters will make his sprint car debut on home soil this Saturday night, the first of a number of such drives over summer for the Tickford Racing pilot. His maiden start will come at Timmis Speedway in Mildura, where the 26-year-old was born, with around 10 events on the cards this year. The 2020 Bathurst 1000 pole-sitter will drive for Colin McQuinn’s Chief Racing team in a Maxim chassis recently acquired from the McFadden family.

Waters was able to conduct a three-session shakedown run at Timmis Speedway last Sunday evening, and has had success in a sedan before. However, he is conscious of the challenge that competing in the 800-horsepower sprint car represents.

“I’m not underestimating the task ahead one bit and my first run in the car last Sunday was a real eye-opener, despite having had some previous Speedway experience,” said Waters.

“Colin has been wanting to field an entry in Sprint Cars for some time and he has put together a very sound program with quality equipment and experienced personnel, but we know we’re the newbies and expect it to be very tough going this weekend. We’re planning to contest around 10 events this year with a view to a bigger program for 2021/22 and to be making my debut on home soil is actually pretty cool. The track has recently been heavily re-profiled and I’m sure it will provide great racing for the 29-strong Sprint Car field.”

“While this year’s Supercars program remains my absolute point of focus, I will be giving it my all when behind the wheel of my VIC #6, and have to thank Tickford Racing’s team boss Tim Edwards for supporting me with my Sprint Car pursuits. Tim has been enthusiastic from the very outset and said he would even happily jump on the tools at some stage, which is great.”

“I’m so thankful to Colin for giving me this incredible opportunity and also crew chief Lindsay Trotter, who brings a wealth of experienced to the team – both on and off track – while the McFaddens have also been a great with putting the car together and helping make this happen.”

Waters finished second in last year’s Supercars Championship with a run home of four straight podiums including a first solo race win and a second place in the Bathurst 1000.

He will once again drive a Tickford Mustang this coming season.

All Star TEH Hard Charger
Wednesday December 16, 2020. All Stars Media
The Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series have managed to secure yet another sponsor to add to their list of nightly awards. The Hard Charger in the A Main every night will have an extra $100 added to their prize money. Transport Equipment Hire TEH is an Australian family business hiring quality transport equipment and transport logistics solutions to the Australian trucking and transport industry based in Sunshine, Victoria.

“You may have seen the TEH logo around Sprintcars before as they have been a long time supporter of Krikke Motorsport and to have their company become involved with us is fantastic. I have been trying to secure a partner for the Hard Charger Award as a regular part of the series but until now haven’t been able to get it done, so to finally be able to hold the Hard Charger Award is pretty cool for us.” Searle said.

Take note next time your transporter breaks down no matter what the job is TEH has your truck and trailer rental solution. 191 Fairbairn Rd, Sunshine. Phone Number 03 9314 2500

All Star Challenge still pays the big bucks
Monday December 14, 2020. All Stars Media
The Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series in conjunction with Heystbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway are very pleased to announce that the All Star Challenge payout will remain the same as last year’s event with $10K to win and $1K to start. “We had a meeting with the Simpson Speedway Committee recently and I am excited to announce that we both came to the decision to not let the event take a step backwards.
The Committee still has the same goal as we do for this show and that is making it the most prestigious and richest 360 show in Australia, we believe we have done that and certainly didn’t want to let a pandemic get in our way. With all the Covid restrictions that are in place this is a brave decision from everyone involved.

We are all hoping that by mid-January restrictions will be eased more allowing an increased spectator base. Unfortunately we won’t have any Americans at the show as the borders are still shut and hopefully they can join us again next year, but I thing I do know is that the racing will still be fantastic.” Mandy Searle tells us.
The total purse on offer is $32,500. “We are also looking at paying out contingency prizes for the B Main which will be advised when confirmed. Last year’s race had everyone pumped and telling us it was one of the best races they had seen and hopefully this year will be the same. Mandy Searle said
Spread the word and let’s get it out to everyone that the show is going on. Make sure you lock in Saturday January 16th 2021, Heytsbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway.


Tancredi locks No 1 in for the season.
Sunday December 6, 2020. All Stars Media
Mother Nature certainly wasn’t ready for the race season to kick off and made it particularly challenging for everyone involved with putting on the Opening night at Blue Ribbon Raceway. Gale force winds and showers most of the afternoon made for a later than scheduled start but in the end competitors won and managed to get all the features in.

Series Champ Michael Tancredi’s V29 took out the honours of being the first Covid Cup winner. Paul Solomon’s V7 in second and Mildura based Jay Brown SA51 home in third. The field lined up for the A with the Solomon brothers on the front row and as always make the start interesting as one brother tries to physic the other brother out. This time Paul got he start but only to be passed by Chris on the second lap. Chris held a strong lead over the field for just over half the race but his night finished in the middle of the back straight sitting the remainder of the race infield.
While this was happening Tancredi had gained on Paul and passed him for the lead. With 12 cars for the shakedown show it was a perfect opportunity for All Star Rookies to get some laps and they did themselves proud. 17 year old Rookie Todd Moule showed talent in the D26 machine moving up to P3 at one stage in the A before retiring with front end damage. Adam Cullinger’s V76 also showed speed on his first night with the All Stars running a strong 4th place for several laps. His results didn’t show what he was capable of being the first car to pull out with a right rear wheel problem. Jason Bolitho’s VA52 first time run in a sprintcar was also encouraging for the team learning more each time he went out.

Andy Hibbert was in the seat of the well-known Mat Eastham owned V88. Hibbert was comfortable in the seat coming home in 5th place. All Star regular SA95 Jarman Dalitz made the long drive from Murray Bridge and after dropping a heat finished strong in 4th place. Unfortunately V60 Jordyn Charges night was finished abruptly hurting his engine at the start of the night. Marcus Green in the Skidmore V71 sustained damage in his second heat and was also out for the night.

Heat wins – Paul Solomon, Chris Solomon and Michael Tancredi
A Main – 1st V29 Michael Tancredi, 2nd V7 Paul Solomon, 3rd SA51 Jay Brown, 4th SA95 Jarman Dalitz, 5th V88 Andy Hibbert, 6th VA52 Jason Bolitho, 7th D26 Todd Moule – DNF, 8th VA99 Corey Sandow – DNF, 9th V83 Chris Solomon DNF. 10th V76 Adam Cullinger DNF.

Kick starting the season
Monday November 30, 2020. All Stars Media
Now that the Victorian Government has announcement easing of restrictions which includes a limited number of spectators at race tracks and state borders opening it is time for us to get back to what we love doing. “We can’t thank Blue Ribbon Raceway enough for allowing us the opportunity to kick start our season with the running of the Covid Cup. We need to kick start the season off sooner rather than later so that our teams and fans can get back to doing what they love. I am extremely happy with the car count as everyone assumed we would not be racing until early next year but the guys are keen to have a shakedown before the Series starts so to have 12 or 13 teams ready at such short notice is fantastic. I think this might even be the first race meeting in Victoria for the season. A couple of clubs have held practice days recently but not an actual race meeting, so we are rapt to be involved for Night No 1. ” says Searle

Current and past Series Champs are running – Michael Tancredi, Paul and Chris Solomon, Jordyn Charge who ran 2nd in the 360 Australian Title back in March this year. A couple of Rookies – V76 Adam Cullinger, VA52 Jason Bolitho and young Todd Moule. Todd has grown up with the All Stars watching his Dad Tony race and after competing in Juniors and a season in Late Models will make his debut into Sprintcars. All Star regular Jarman Dalitz SA95 is the latest to nominate after deciding to make the trip over the border from South Australia. Marcus Green is back driving the V71 for the Skidmore brothers. Andy Hibbert is in the Drysdale’s Chaff Mill-EZ Print-Magnet Towing V88, Mildura based VA99 Corey Sandow & SA51 Jay Brown all taking advantage on the shakedown show.

“To say I am excited is an understatement – roll on this Saturdays Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star’s Covid Cup.” Mandy tells us.

Blue Ribbon Raceway has a Facebook page for any enquiries or contact their email address [email protected] This Saturday night December 5. Kalkee, Horsham.


All Stars firing up
Monday November 23, 2020. All Stars Media
With the Victorian Governments announcement of easing restrictions on the weekend we are excited to announce that Blue Ribbon Raceway will be holding their opening race meeting on December 5th. This date was originally a scheduled Series round we have been invited by the club to be a part of their opening show. While the venue must run under certain conditions, with limited spectators and with Covid restrictions in place they are still keen to get the Speedway season up and running. “I can’t tell you how excited I was when I spoke to the Clubs Vice President and we will work with them to make this event successful. We need to start racing so people don’t lose interest in our sport. We need to give our drivers an opportunity to get their cars out of the sheds and get life back to some normality. Drivers were equally as excited when I approached them about the possibility of running.” says Mandy Searle.

Current Series Champ Michael Tancredi, Paul Solomon, Chris Solomon and Jordyn Charge were the quickest to reply with how keen they are to get back racing again. Hopefully the SA/Vic borders will be completely open by then and it might give some of our SA teams a chance to come and have a run.

Blue Ribbon Raceway held a successful Practice Day for all divisions at the start of November and now the season starts for real on December 5. Nominations for the All Star series are still being accepted via [email protected] or via message on the Australian Sprintcar All Star Facebook page.

All Stars 2020-21 Update
Wednesday October 7, 2020. All Stars Media
“Covid-19 virus is still having an impact especially for those of us that live in Victoria. We had hoped that the season would go ahead as normal but as we know now that will not happen. I announced a while back the borders must be open and venues allowed some level of spectators before the Series can start. Unfortunately it is quite apparent that this will not happen before Christmas. I have spoken to all of the venues that we compete at and they are all in the same position as us and waiting for the government to announce more information. But having said that we are still not giving up and hoping to still run a series with a reduced number of rounds - possibly 5 or 6 being held in 2021. We are hopeful that by January the borders between NSW, South Australia and Victoria will be open and that some crowd can attend race meetings. Hopefully we can announce the new series dates in November. Thanks for everyone patience and as you are aware conditions change daily and we can only continue to stay positive and do what we feel is the best thing for the Series.” Promoter Mandy Searle tells us.

Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers have recommitted as Naming Rights sponsor and as we speak we are in touch with all our regular valued sponsors and asking if they will continue their support.

1st All Star E Challenge winner is Jock Goodyer
Monday July 20, 2020. All Stars Media
Because of the pandemic Australia wide Clubs are forced to come up with different ideas for fund raising during their off seasons. Heystbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway joined forces with Speedway Australia to fund raise for their club by running the All Star E Challenge.

With 60 odd nominations, 4/5 heats, C Mains, Pole Shootout, B Mains and finally a 30 lap A Main all in front of an online audience Jock Goodyer crossed the checkers first and claimed the title as the 1st Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star E Challenge winner. Joel Berkley home in 2nd and Aaron Kelly in 3rd. Racing was hard and fast with some major tear ups. Stewards had to intervene in the Pole Shoot Out and as per All Star style you only got one chance and the looser goes straight to the infield.

“What a fun night’s entertainment it was. With some of our major series sponsors and series commentator getting behind the event just adding to the reality of it. The graphics were brilliant. Steven Woolstencroft did a great job and hopefully this can become an annual off season event and hopefully Simpson raised some needed funds.” Promoter Searle said.

Contingency winners – Bar Up Bull Bars 8 – Brad O’Brien, IDIGIT Lucky 10 – Joel Buettel, Hoosier Hero – Jock Goodyer.
